I’m enjoying All the Light We Cannot See so far, particularly Marie-Laure’s story. Her descriptions of books makes me want to read books I’d never want to read, and how marvelous would it be to grow up with a natural history museum as your playground?
I also like books with short chapters and shifting perspectives like this. It makes the reading seem like it goes much faster.
i have this theory that every time we dream, we see an alternate reality. after all, in string theory, all universes exist. i have died many times there. i get déjà vu a lot. i wonder if i am in someone else’s dream, and she has just woken up. maybe she’s screaming at me to stop, to move a little to the left, to watch out. when i wake up i always wonder if i’m the same me or i’ve been replaced by the girl in my dream. if i died there to get a second chance here. or maybe here is where i’m learning how not to die so violently. i don’t know. i don’t get much sleep.
